He also gave the cow water to drink, but Byantaka only had a very small pot for water.
His neighbour agreed to lend Byantaka his biggest clay pot saying, "My neighbour's problem is my problem."
He put the small pot inside the big pot that he had borrowed from his neighbor.
He carried the big pot to the neighbour who loaned it to him.
The neighbour was amazed that his pot had produced another pot. He praised Byantaka saying, "Your home is blessed."
He did not have good intentions.
Eventually he went to Byantaka's home and said, "I have come for my pot."
He shouted at Byantaka, "I have never heard of a pot dying!"
He found the owner of the pot was in the wrong and decreed that Byantaka must be allowed to keep the dead pot.
That is how the judge judged the case.
Byantaka had got the big pot with his cleverness.
